WLDP - 7. Management Skills

WAGGGS Leadership Development Programme modules

The WLDP Leadership Resources are modules available to trainers, which will support Member Organizations in developing leadership development activities, events and workshops for new, existing and potential leaders. These modules include theory, individual and group exercises and guided reflection on the topics. 

Please note: The materials are offered as support materials and not as an alternative to a full WLDP event.

7. Management Skills

Management skills can be compared to the method and art of making tea. As a leader, you often need a method of doing things in an efficient and correct way but it does not necessarily make you a good leader.

As with making tea, your decisions have an impact on your results but so, too, does your personality, your patience and how much you care about the result.

Management skills are tools you use for your leadership. Even so, you as the leader have to choose the relevant tool and to use it according to its purpose and your judgment of the need. Also, your way of using the tool impacts the result.

This module should provide most WAGGGS leaders with different tools to carry out the administrative and daily tasks of their leadership. It is delivered in a context where discussion and practicing is made possible, in the aim of making the learner conscious about her choices of tools to use.
